Maggie Xiao is pursing her MD at the University of Alberta. She graduated from the Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology Specialist and Molecular Genetics Major programs at the University of Toronto, St. George with the Allan Gornall Testimonial Prize for the highest cGPA of a student graduating in Pathobiology, capping her constancy in academic excellence as a Provost Scholar at Trinity College.
She is a UofT scholar, which provides recognition to the University’s outstanding students on the basis of their average at the time of admission and has routinely achieved the grade of A-A+ in all the courses, scoring close to triple digits in the BIO120/BIO130 course pair.
Securing a NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award, Maggie has participated in research with faculty members since first year. Her interest in basic science and clinical research transpired in projects revolving around neurological pathways, Drosophila genomics, developmental psychology, cell-fate determination, and CPET prognostic performance in labs both on-campus and in hospital research institutions. She currently works with a nephrologist at SickKids investigating the association of illness severity markers with the onset of chronic kidney disease in children.
